Sandown: holds Listed action on Wednesday
1 of 1

There is Listed action at Sandown today with the Smarkets Fortune Stakes (3.15) heading the card. Last year's Royal Hunt Cup winner Zhui Feng and the lightly-raced Wadilsafa head the nine runners in a race won in the past by the likes of Racing Post Trophy winner Elm Park.

Yarmouth also holds a Listed contest for fillies, the EBF Stallions John Musker Fillies’ Stakes (3.35) which includes UAE 1,000 Guineas winner Winter Lightning, while Beverley and Naas are the other Flat fixtures to provide the afternoon's action. Kelso is the sole jumps and evening meeting for the day.

After several very smart juvenile performances at the weekend, there's every chance we could see some more potentially useful runners in the novice contests at Sandown and Yarmouth.
